No way to talk about this hotel without talking about that tank... 6, 7 stories tall? Rest of hotel is modern nice business hotel. Excellent rooms, good breakfast. Health club could use some work. Small basement room and not a great selection of machines.

Room Tip: Would have preferred an internal room. Views of Belin are okay, but the good rooms look intomthe lob...

We have visited this hotel a couple of times and the staff never ceases to amaze us! The concierge, the staff at the reception area, at the restaurant and housekeeping is extremely service minded and accommodating! The rooms are decorated in a modern style, very quiet and always clean! The feeling of waking up and seeing fish in clear blue water outside your window, is an extraordinary feeling. The hotel offers a large breakfast buffet and the food in the hotel restaurant "Heat" is delicious! When comparing with hotels such as The Golden Tulip Berlin Hotel Hamburg, we dare to say that the Radisson Blu Hotel Berlin is the hotel to stay at - it is the best hotel in Berlin! P.S. Do not forget to visit the hotel swimming pool!

Great value for your money!

The hotel is located in the very heart of the city (if you can say where the center in Berlin is): close to Alexanderplatz (with all the possible public transport), close to Unter den Linden (one of the main streets with good restaurants, shops and cafes), close to the Museum Island (for sightseeing), on the river (good for taking a river cruise and just walking around). You can also walk easily to Brandenburg Gate or Friedrichstraße with all the night life.

What I liked:

- Huge variety of fresh food for breakfast (they even fry fresh omelet or waffles there for you).
- Extremely friendly and helpful stuff
- Concierge downstairs will give all the best advices for where to go, what to see, what to eat, how to get there... will book the table for you in the restaurant, sell tickets for the cruise, send your postcards... everything! They are nice people and solve all your questions out in a minute!
- Stunning view from the window! our room was in the 6th floor with the river and Berliner Dom just in front of you! (ask for that kid of rooms, instead of inner hall or street view).
- Huge aquarium in the lobby - enjoyable view with exotic fishes;
- Nice bar in the lobby - good drinks and relaxing "club-kind-of" music (chill-out?) - exactly as I like it, though people have different taste for music.
- Bath tab in the room

The only tiny note: there was no remarkable design in our room. it was comfy and clean and everything what you need for a short stay (weekend in my case), but absolutely nothing remarkable or to remember about the room design (beside the french balcony and view, of course!). But you don't come to sit in your room when traveling, right? ;)

Room Tip: ask for the high floor and river view - amazing!

The enitre hotel, as you would expect is spotless.
The rooms, the resturant, the bar, all perfect.

Breakfast is a feast.
The reception staff are helpful, welcoming and friendly.
In a great location next to Poterdams Platz

Just stayed here over the weekend, the hotel was very busy & there was a good atmosphere.
The room we were in on the 6th floor was very quiet & comfy beds (pillows were not great for me)
The lobby fish tank is actually par of the sea life centre next door so you have to pay to get on the lift that takes you up the middle but it looks very impressive when you are in the lift.
The hotel is is a great location for all the sights & close to the Alexander Platz area where there is a train to the airport.
Breakfast was lovely, the chef was always around topping up the food which I though was really good to see.
Lovely pool & spa that's open till 10pm which is great after a long day sightseeing!

Stayed here on a 3 night Berlin city break and the location was perfect. Most sights were within walking distance of the hotel plus it was also in walking distant for the airport express S station.
It is a lovely modern hotel with good size rooms and house keeping was excellent. Free wifi was appreciated but one disappointment as ours was a standard room, no coffee/tea making equipment.
Would certainly stay again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Reception told us outside rooms are less stuffier than inside ones.

The best things about this hotel are the location (right in the historic section), the amazing round aquarium that shoots up through the center of the lobby, the comfortable beds and the front desk staff and manager. If you can, spend a little extra and opt for a room (such as a business class one) with a view of the river and the Berlin Cathedral. I took one of these, not super spacious, but comfortable enough and a wonderful view. The only things could have been better during my stay were the tiny fitness center and their management, the overflow breakfast seating (in a conference room) over the busy Easter weekend, and not being able to check into the room until after 2pm. I was dead tired and really just wanted a bed. I also found the connoisseur a bit hidden off to one side... perhaps it would be better to move him/her to a more noticeable place? At any rate, a great stay and would easily book again.
